Three Apples Card

This is a card I made using the letterpress/reverse embossing folder method.  I used an inked Sizzix embossing folder for the background with Distress Ink.  The stamp is by Lockhart.  First I used copics to color the image and then I inked the background with Distress Ink and sprayed it with pearl mists.  I then outline the image with a sharpie.  At the end I crushed the paper into a ball to make it look even more distressed.

A Birthday Card for David

This is a card I made for my brother David.   It is his birthday Sunday and I just got around to making him this card tonight.  I always have a hard time making cards for men that is why I love these Harley images from my other blog Digital Two for Tuesday.  They always seem to work.

I used the riveted metal embossing folder from Tim Holtz on metal sticky tape from Home Depot.  Then I painted on Vintaj Patina paint by Ranger in Onyx and Clay.  I gently buffed off the ink from the entire surface and then sanded the raised areas.  I stained the images with Antique Photo Distress Ink and Picket Fence Distress Stain.

Hooked Book

Here is a felted cover of a book. It actually is a felted dryer sheet since I did not have any felt. I used Alcohol Inks to color the surface. The spine is rag yarn hooked through a rug hooking base.
